Not to digress, but does anyone also have the original mix for "Anthem Of The Sun" to share also? It had a nicer mix IMO than the remastered re-release. I love the original "Aoxomoxoa" mix. Used to have the vinyl album back in the early '70's and always missed that "Mountains Of The Moon" choir and the extended ending on "Doin' That Rag". Strange that Jerry chose to mix so much of the wierdness out of it. Maybe he was trying to make it more palatable for the uninitiated if that was ever possible.

one thing you can do here is listen to some of the live shows Anthem of the Sun used pieces of,
such as the 1968-02-14 Alligator:

"Caution dates from the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium show on 11/10/67.
Extended excerpts from two shows at Kings Beach Bowl in Lake Tahoe, CA on 2/23-24/68 that provided music for the album (most notably the car horn heard at the end of Caution were later released on the live archival recording Dick's Picks Volume 22.

A further show from this period whose contents were used on Anthem Of The Sun, hailing from 3/16/68, was released as the Grateful Dead Download Series Volume 6."


Shrine Exposition Center, Los Angeles, CA, November 10 - 11, 1967
Eureka Municipal Auditorium, Eureka, CA, January 20, 1968
Eagles Auditorium, Seattle, WA, January 26 - 27, 1968
Crystal Ballroom, Portland, OR, February 2 - 3, 1968
Carousel Ballroom, San Francisco, CA, February 14, March 15 - 17, March 29 - 31, 1968
